Abaixo a nota oficial. O que ele inventou foi uma sacada sensacional. Recomendo ler "A meta". Não precisa ser cientista nem matemático para entender.

On June 11th, 2011 at noon, Eli Goldratt passed away at his home in Israel in company of his family and close friends.
The strength and passion of Eli allowed him to spend his last days sharing and delivering his latest insights and breakthroughs to a group of people who have committed to transfer this knowledge to the TOC Community during the upcoming Theory of Constraints International Certification Organization Conference in New York.
It was Eli's last wish to take TOC to the next level - truly standing on the shoulders of the Giant he is.
"I smile and start to count on my fingers: One, people are good. Two, every conflict can be removed. Three, every situation, no matter how complex it initially looks, is exceedingly simple. Four, every situation can be substantially improved; even the sky is not the limit. Five, every person can reach a full life. Six, there is always a win-win solution. Shall I continue to count?"
Dr. Eliyahu M. Goldratt
